To inspire a sustainable home with affordable solutions for an everyday lifestyle. Our blog contains both simple side recipes and full-blown meals. When a chef and a nutritionist fall in love the meals are both healthy & flavourful.
We aim to keep things simple, local (optimally homemade and homegrown), and related to season to keep your body in tuned with our current environment.
To share and review similar efforts to our own, such as new products and businesses we support because they are forward thinkers. We invest in companies that aim to reduce waste, the use of plastics, chemicals and synthetic ingredients. This is something we deem essential to maintain a sustainable home.
What does the word sustainable mean to us?
defined by Merriam-Webster as: "of, relating to, or being a method of harvesting or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged".
In our home we believe being sustainable relates to our actions and lifestyle- from where we shop, what we shop and then how we live in our home. Our goals are to minimize the amount of waste we produce, ideally we like to use only our recycling bins and compost in our own backyard. We continually practice our skills at home, striving to learn about our favourite foods and products so we can create them at home using natural processes and local ingredients. So for example: Sam learned how to make homemade yogurt from local dairy in hopes of reducing the ecological footprint associated with supporting large commercial brands, the use of plastic tubs, and the gas and electricity associated with transport and production. Brian learned how to make homemade dinners, sauces, soups, dressings and variations using local ingredients hereby reducing the use of packaging, advertising, and travel associated with various products from all over the world.
